V3:
Drop interrupt
Introduce transports for mem/reg usage
Add chan-id for mem usage
Convert to yaml format
 
V2:
This is a modified version from Andre Przywara's patch series
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/cover/812997/.
The modification are mostly:
Introduce arm,num-chans
Introduce arm_smccc_mbox_cmd
txdone_poll and txdone_irq are both set to false
arm,func-ids are kept, but as an optional property.
Rewords SCPI to SCMI, because I am trying SCMI over SMC, not SCPI.
Introduce interrupts notification.

[1] is a draft implementation of i.MX8MM SCMI ATF implementation that
use smc as mailbox, power/clk is included, but only part of clk has been
implemented to work with hardware, power domain only supports get name
for now.

The traditional Linux mailbox mechanism uses some kind of dedicated hardware
IP to signal a condition to some other processing unit, typically a dedicated
management processor.
This mailbox feature is used for instance by the SCMI protocol to signal a
request for some action to be taken by the management processor.
However some SoCs does not have a dedicated management core to provide
those services. In order to service TEE and to avoid linux shutdown
power and clock that used by TEE, need let firmware to handle power
and clock, the firmware here is ARM Trusted Firmware that could also
run SCMI service.

The existing SCMI implementation uses a rather flexible shared memory
region to communicate commands and their parameters, it still requires a
mailbox to actually trigger the action.

This patch series provides a Linux mailbox compatible service which uses
smc calls to invoke firmware code, for instance taking care of SCMI requests.
The actual requests are still communicated using the standard SCMI way of
shared memory regions, but a dedicated mailbox hardware IP can be replaced via
this new driver.

This simple driver uses the architected SMC calling convention to trigger
firmware services, also allows for using "HVC" calls to call into hypervisors
or firmware layers running in the EL2 exception level.

Patch 1 contains the device tree binding documentation, patch 2 introduces
the actual mailbox driver.

Please note that this driver just provides a generic mailbox mechanism,
It could support synchronous TX/RX, or synchronous TX with asynchronous
RX. And while providing SCMI services was the reason for this exercise,
this driver is in no way bound to this use case, but can be used generically
where the OS wants to signal a mailbox condition to firmware or a
hypervisor.
Also the driver is in no way meant to replace any existing firmware
interface, but actually to complement existing interfaces.

From: Peng Fan <peng.fan@nxp.com>

The ARM SMC/HVC mailbox binding describes a firmware interface to trigger
actions in software layers running in the EL2 or EL3 exception levels.
The term "ARM" here relates to the SMC instruction as part of the ARM
instruction set, not as a standard endorsed by ARM Ltd.

V3:
 Convert to yaml
 Drop interrupt
 Introudce transports to indicate mem/reg
 The func id is still kept as optional, because like SCMI it only
 cares about message.

V2:
 Introduce interrupts as a property.

+description: |
+  This mailbox uses the ARM smc (secure monitor call) and hvc (hypervisor
+  call) instruction to trigger a mailbox-connected activity in firmware,
+  executing on the very same core as the caller. By nature this operation
+  is synchronous and this mailbox provides no way for asynchronous messages
+  to be delivered the other way round, from firmware to the OS, but
+  asynchronous notification could also be supported. However the value of
+  r0/w0/x0 the firmware returns after the smc call is delivered as a received
+  message to the mailbox framework, so a synchronous communication can be
+  established, for a asynchronous notification, no value will be returned.
+  The exact meaning of both the action the mailbox triggers as well as the
+  return value is defined by their users and is not subject to this binding.
+
+  One use case of this mailbox is the SCMI interface, which uses shared memory
+  to transfer commands and parameters, and a mailbox to trigger a function
+  call. This allows SoCs without a separate management processor (or when
+  such a processor is not available or used) to use this standardized
+  interface anyway.
+
+  This binding describes no hardware, but establishes a firmware interface.
+  Upon receiving an SMC using one of the described SMC function identifiers,
+  the firmware is expected to trigger some mailbox connected functionality.
+  The communication follows the ARM SMC calling convention.
+  Firmware expects an SMC function identifier in r0 or w0. The supported
+  identifiers are passed from consumers, or listed in the the arm,func-ids
+  properties as described below. The firmware can return one value in
+  the first SMC result register, it is expected to be an error value,
+  which shall be propagated to the mailbox client.
+
+  Any core which supports the SMC or HVC instruction can be used, as long as
+  a firmware component running in EL3 or EL2 is handling these calls.

From: Peng Fan <peng.fan@nxp.com>

This mailbox driver implements a mailbox which signals transmitted data
via an ARM smc (secure monitor call) instruction. The mailbox receiver
is implemented in firmware and can synchronously return data when it
returns execution to the non-secure world again.
An asynchronous receive path is not implemented.
This allows the usage of a mailbox to trigger firmware actions on SoCs
which either don't have a separate management processor or on which such
a core is not available. A user of this mailbox could be the SCP
interface.

Constraints? 0 is valid? 2^32?

What if someone wants to configure this per channel? Perhaps
#mbox-cells should be 2 and this can be a client parameter.

Minimally, this needs a 'arm' vendor prefix if it stays.

What's the default if not specified? Or this should be required?

This looks much better now.

I am new to yaml, is there a way to say the number of entries here must
match arm,num-chans ? And not sure if min/maxItems matter then ?

Why is arm,func-ids optional ? Is there any standard arm,func-ids we can
resort to. Sorry I know you expect ARM Ltd to answer that, but I just want
to raise the point that we don't have one today and hence it can't be
optional. Or I am missing something ?

0 is not valid. There should be limited channels, but depends on firmware design.

I need to check. Currently I only use one type. There might be people
want to use different transports for each channels.

"arm,transports" in v4.

If not specified, it means the client firmware driver will pass it to mailbox driver.

I am also new to yaml, Rob might have ideas.

In the v3 patchset, Jassi expected the id be passed from client firmware driver,
but you said scmi is expected a only message protocol. So here I still keep this
as optional, if specified in dts, the mailbox driver will use it. If not specificed
in dts, the mailbox driver expect the client firmware driver pass the func id to
mailbox driver.

Thanks,
Peng.
